Flex Day – February 9, 2017

January 30, 2017

Dear Rosemount Community,

We will conduct our second Irish Flex Day for Winter Trimester on Thursday, February 9. The purpose of this list serve is to share some of the details regarding Flex Days.

In order to increase student success in their classes and to expose students to topics of academic importance outside of the classroom, Rosemount High School will be hosting six Irish Flex Days over the course of the 2016–2017 school year. All of the district high schools will be providing these flex days for students during the 2016-2017 school year. On these days, students will be provided with fifty minutes of Enrichment/Intervention time. Students in need of extra help with their class work will be provided Intervention time where they will work with one of their teachers to review concepts and/or make up missed work.

Students not needing Intervention time may attend an Enrichment session, if invited, which will focus on a timely academic topic of interest. Prior to our Irish Flex Day, Thursday, February 9, students needing Intervention time will be issued a pass by their classroom teacher who wishes to work with them. On Irish Flex Day afternoon, classes will be shortened to allow for Intervention and Enrichment time.

On Thursday, February 9, teachers will invite students from grades 9–12, they wish to work with individually, for intervention or enrichment sessions and students are to report to that teacher’s homeroom location at 12:30 pm for Flex Day period. Attendance will be taken.

All students not directly invited by a teacher are to report to their assigned homeroom location and teacher at 12:30 pm for a silent study hall.

At 1:25 pm we will begin with our adjusted afternoon schedule for periods 6–7 where each period will be approximately 25 minutes. Periods 1–5 will run according to our normal schedule.
